Ubisoft's zombie shooter ZombiU for the Wii U, which was unveiled at E3 two weeks ago, has been revealed to be a reboot of the company's very first title Zombi originally published in 1986. In both games players control a gang of survivors trying to avoid being eaten by zombies; if a player is eaten they can reappear as one of the undead. However these appear to be the only similarities between the titles.
The 1986 original was based entirely in a shopping mall (as a tribute to George A. Romero's film Dawn of the Dead) and players had to make their way through individual rooms to progress through the game. In ZombiU players must endure the streets of London shooting zombies whilst rummaging through a backpack for the appropriate zombie killing gear.
Zombi enjoyed success in its time with many positive reviews and ZombiU looks like it is set to do just as well. Do you enjoy a good old fashioned zombie shooter?
